MATTAPOISETT IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION 
1904 - 1979 (75 years) 

At the turn of the century the need of an 
Improvement Association in our town was 

growing even before any active 

measures were taken to give it life. It 
wasn't until August of 1904 that the organi- 
zation took definite shape. By 1905 the 
membership had grown to over 200 members 
who generously contributed both their time 
and money for the success of the association 

The first officers were as follows: Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Charles S. Hamlin; Vice Presi- 
dent, Isaiah P. Atsatt; Secretary, Nathan 
S. Mendell; Treasurer, Harry W. Griffin. 
Mrs. Hamlin was to be re-elected President 
twenty-four more times. Under her leader- 
ship and dedication the association car- ~ 
ried out an impressive list of projects 
which were to continue for many more years . 

It is interesting to note that the organi- 
zation's first project was the weekly col- 
lection of rubbish. A large wagon drawn 
by two horses and driver was contracted 
with Dennis Mahoney. Cost to the associ- 
ation was three dollars a week and later 
raised to four dollars. The dumping area 
used was on County Road, just east of

Main Street, all marshland where now 
stands a row of houses . 

Among the many projects of improvement 
in the years to follow were the placing 
of rubbish barrels at various spots in the 
village, the care of the bathing beach, 
the restoring of the artistic beauty of the 
"Arch Bridge" following the disfiguring 
by vandals, the undertaking of repairs

which led to Marion. Along this trail 
could be seen old foundations and flower- 
ing lilac bushes showing signs of where 
founding fathers once lived. In 1908 
the association undertook a beautifica- 
tion project that was to last 15 years 
before the town took over the costs -- 
the cleaning up of debris, leaves, fallen 
branches and trash from the streets. They 
acquired a push cart equipped with a shovel, 
broom and a long pole with steel pointer 
for the picking up of papers. A worker was 
hired and provided with blue denim overalls 
and a visored cap bearing the initials M.I. A., 
making a very impressive appearance, no 
doubt. Another notable project was the 
start of garbage collection from the many 
boats and yachts anchored in our harbor 
during the summer season. The service 
was free and the association provided the 
"garbage boat" and operator. Many years 
later this service was taken over by the 
town . 

By far the most important accomplishment 
of the year 1912 was the establishing of 
a Visiting Nurse Service, the first in Ply- 
mouth County. In years to follow a Dental 
Clinic for school children was established, 
but not until much endeavor on the part of 
a special committee appointed for this 
purpose. An appeal to the Red Cross 
brought results. The Red Cross donated 
$300.00 worth of equipment to M.I. A.

who in turn obtained permission to install 
chair, sterilizer, etc. in the school build- 
ing. The dentist charged the $15.00 week- 
ly rate to the association, and in time, 
other organizations helped by sharing 
with this expense as rates increased. 
Also, in time, the school board made 
available running water installation which 
was gratefully appreciated by dentist, 
nurse and patient who considered it a 
great advantage! 

There were many other programs initi- 
ated such as providing hot cocoa or soup 
at the school (Center) and the running of 
contests on subjects such as "how to im- 
prove our town" or "beautification of our

town". Prizes were awarded to student 
winners for ideas considered best. Then, 
there was the sponsoring of both Boy and 
Girl Scout Troops for a great many years . 
Through the years , there were many more 
worthwhile programs ... all too numerous 
to mention here. 

How was all this financed? Well, besides 
the membership dues , there were receipts 
from the sale of hundreds of books, the now 
widely read "Mattapoisett and Old Rochester", 
the flower shows, baked food sales and 
the great Summer Fairs held at our water- 
front park all financially successful 

endeavors by a hardworking membership! 

Somewhere in this town there will still 
be a number of people who recall other 
works by this association which was 
made up of "townies" and summer resi- 
dents, all highly motivated community- 
minded. They have been the ones who 
initiated the present services that we 
now take so for granted. After this in- 
sight into aims and goals reached by this 
association, we can clearly see what 
an impact the organization had in the

Since the membership of the Improve- 
ment Association has dwindled consider- 
ably for several years, a realistic view 
has brought on a decision to dissolve. 
By unanimous vote it was agreed to turn 
over all liquid assets of the association 
to the Mattapoisett Historical Society. 
This decision was made in the belief 
that its aims and goals coincide with 
that of our Association, which, as that 
wonderful lady, Mrs. Hamlin, once said, 
"the most important things that can be 
done for the future of the town is to pre- 
serve the past as well as to look forward 
to the future" .

HOUSE NUMBERS IN ROCHESTER 

The Rochester Selectmen and Rochester 
Postmaster want to emphasize to all town 
residents the importance of using the new 
house numbers issued by the town last Fall. 
These numbers and only these numbers should 
now be affixed to each dwelling and mail 
box, if applicable, and addresses should be 
corrected for all mailing and delivery ser- 
vices . Any number formerly issued by the 
Post Office for rural delivery purposes 
should be removed. 

The cooperation of the public in this 
matter is urgently sought since the effective- 
ness in rendering quick emergency services 
as well as assuring proper receipt of mail 
or commercial deliveries is directly related 
to 100% participation in the numbering sys- 
tem .

Editorial, D.C.J. 

President Carter's address to the nation 
on the Russian invasion of Afghanistan be- 
gan with the observation that we learn little 
from history. Certainly, this is obvious as 
regards his own outlook. For some others, 
history is the best teacher of all for it tends 
to repeat itself. Historically, the Soviet 
Russians have never made an agreement which 
does not give them an advantage and which 
they are not willing to break whenever their 
own self-interest is at stake. 

Therefore, the President's decision to post- 
pone the ramrodding of Salt II through the 
U.S. Senate may well be the greatest achieve- 
ment of this administration.

The illegal seizure of 50 Americans on U.S. 
soil (the U.S. Embassy) which has been 
tolerated so long and patiently as to indicate 
the greatest indecisiveness and weakness 
on the part of U.S. leadership doubtless 
was a major factor in the Soviet decision 
to invade Afghanistan. The suffering of 
these 50 Americans will not have been in 
vain if it instructs the Carter administration 
that the Russians take advantage of every 
weakness and make no pact that does not 
advance their purpose of world communism. 

The Russians did not build the Berlin wall 
to keep non-Communists out. The Soviets 
built their wall to imprison those who are 
desperate to escape. Salt II is a step to- 
ward another bigger "wall" to contain more 
slaves .

Veterans' Notes 

The need for veterans to tell their fami- 
lies where important veterans' documents 
are kept cannot be overemphasized. 

Safeguarding discharge papers, marriage 
certificates or child custody evidence from 
fire, theft or loss could be one of the most 
important legacies a veteran can leave his 
survivors. Among documents that should 
be protected and filed with family papers 
are government and commercial life insur- 
ance policies, any VA correspondence with 
identifying claim numbers, social security 
numbers, wills and where applicable, 
naturalization papers. 

Families should be aware of possible

survivor benefits. These include VA pen- 
sions, dependency and indemnity com- 
pensation for service-connected death, 
burial benefits and internment in a nation- 
al cemetery. 

A few minutes spent by the veteran or- 
ganizing documents and informing his 
family can do much to avoid anguish dur- 
ing times of emotional stress. 

Veterans should alert their families that 
information and assistance concerning 
benefits are available at the VA Regional

SHIPBUILDERS OF MATTAPOISETT 
By Charles S. Mendell, Jr. 

So, 185 years ago this summer, the sound 
of the hammers of the shipcarpenters was 
heard along this harbor for the first time - 
a resonance that rang over the fields and 
woods for more than a century, a sound so 
penetrating that woodsmen getting shiptimber

in the forest needed no watches to tell them 
when noon and suppertime had arrived, a 
hammering so all-pervading that old people 
still remember it as the dominant feature of 
Mattapoisett . 

At first glance one might wonder why skilled 
craftsmen would leave established businesses 
and come to this out-of-the-way, almost 
uninhabited spot. But a moment's reflection 
will show that it possessed the prime re- 
quisites for a desirable shipbuilding location. 
Here was a fine harbor - in those days of 
small wooden ships the best between the 
North River and New Bedford. Here was a 
source of supply — an almost untouched 
supply of virgin timber extending miles and ' 
miles inland. And close at hand was the 
third necessity - markets that were greedy 
for ships; for Nantucket's whaling and mari- 
time commerce was booming, and the little 
village on the West side of the Acushnet 
River was sending out more and more vessels 
every year. 

Charles Stetson's shipyard lay at the foot 
of Pearl Street extending from the present 
Town Wharf property over to where Mr.

Stackpole lives. His house, which was 
built before 17 57, was, it is almost cer- 
tain, the lovely old house now occupied 
by Mrs. Barklie. He must have prospered; 
for before long others came -- in 17 60 
Nathaniel Cushing from Pembroke and 
Gideon Barstow of the famous Barstow 
builders in Hanover; in 17 62 Stephen Cush- 
ing from Pembroke; in 1767 , Joshua Stud- 
ley, and later Seth Barstow, from Tisbury; 
and from then on the property along the 
harbor passed to so many shipbuilders 
and with such frequency, that it is hard 
to keep track of it. Most of these men 
bought strips of land extending inland from 
the harbor half a mile or more. They built 
their houses and barns close to the shore, 
almost in their shipyards; and from these

their plowed fields, pastures, and orchards 
stretched back; for in those pioneering days 
a shipbuilder was also a farmer if he want- 
ed to eat. 

Of course, at this early date, it is im- 
possible to learn of the precise position 
of each shipyard, but in general it suffices 
to say that the Nathaniel Cushing yard lay 
in the corner of the harbor at Cannonville; 
the Joshua Studley and later Seth Barstow' s 
yard between Mrs. Hinsdale's and the pre- 
sent Anchorage property. Of the vessels 
that were built before the Revolution noth- 
ing is known, save for one, and that only 
because it was named the Rochester and 
was wrecked off Nantucket in 1774 while 
starting on a whaling voyage. But from 
scattered sources we find that the ship- 
yards were active; that more mariners came, 
more wharves were built, more men sailed 
south and returned with molasses, corn, 
and sugar; more men came to work in the 

shipyards, blacksmiths, blockmakers, 

sailmakers, caulkers, and various other 
craftsmen; and the houses along the cart- 
paths from shore to forest increased in 
number. 

Yet as a whole, shipbuilders did not 
prosper in those days. Few people today 
realize what hard times existed in Massa-

chusetts from 1760 to 1775, when the 
trouble between the colonies and England 
was coming to a boil. There was practical- 
ly no money in those days . Even building 
a ship was done by barter — each vessel 
was the property of a group of men who 
contributed either labor or materials to- 
ward her construction. Then if she were 
sold to some merchant in Nantucket or 
Dartmouth or Newport, he promised to pay 
for her out of the proceeds of ber voyage. 
And her voyage was so apt to be a total 
loss. The mortality of those little vessels 
was tremendous; gales, uncharted coasts, 
French and Spanish privateers, pirates -- 
all took a heavy toll. If the merchant 
couldn't pay for the vessel, what happened 
to the shipbuilder who was responsible to 
the men who had financed her? 

Charles Stetson, the first of the ship- 
builders, furnishes a sad example of this. 
In 17 67 and 17 68 numerous court executions 
were obtained against him, and the plain- 
tiffs in these cases show plainly with 
whom Stetson did business and for whom 
he built ships. They were Jonathan Burn- 
ell, Joseph Rotch, and Joseph Nicols of 
Nantucket, and Joseph Rotch, Jr. and John

River were burned by the British in 1778. 

Stetson struggled along for over a year, 
selling his woodlots and saltmarshes piece 
by piece to pay off his debts , until finally 
there was but one left; and on a June day 
in 17 68 the Constable rode along Pine Island 
Way, turned down the cartpath to the shore, 
drew up to the house still standing there, 
and pulled out a warrant. 

"Bristol, ss. George the Third, by the

And so the man who had first brought to the 
shores of Mattapoisett harbor the sawpit, the 
scaffolding, the ox-drawn loads of timber, 
and the ever sounding hammers of the caulkers 
went by the board and lost his shipyard. He 
continued to live in Mattapoisett, as did his 
sons, for they fought in the Revolution as 
Rochester soldiers; but when the war was 
over, the sons, and perhaps the old father, 
moved to New Bedford and established a 
shipyard quite a way north of the present 
bridge, where the Stetson sons built over 
50 ships for the young village of New Bed- 
ford; and the descendants of these men were 
New Bedford whaling captains for many years. 

But Charles Stetson was not the only one. 
Every shipbuilder who came to Mattapoisett 
before the Revolution failed — save one. 
Gideon Barstow, who bought his first ship- 
yard property from William Rotch in 17 60, 
was as prosperous as his competitors were 
unfortunate, for he not only weathered the 
Revolution, but by 1784 he and his sons

STOP SMOKING CLINIC 

Recent government surveys indicate that 
there is an increasingly negative attitude 
toward cigarette smoking, even among 
smokers. The increased awareness of health 
hazards on the part of the smoker seems 
coupled, however, with an ability to give 
up cigarettes . According to the survey 
report, nine out of ten smokers in the 
sample had tried unsuccessfully to give 
up the habit or would if an easy way to 
stop existed. 

St. Luke's Hospital's Community Edu- 
cation Program along with the Greater New 
Bedford Unit of the American Cancer So- 
ciety is co-sponsoring a Stop Smoking 
Clinic, designed for anyone who is look- 
ing for a way to break the difficult habit. 
The Stop Smoking Clinic will be held at 
St. Luke's Hospital on the nights of Janu- 
ary 9th, 14th, 16th and 21st from 7:30 
to 9:30. To pre-register anyone can call 
996-62 62, and a fee will be charged but 
is returnable upon completion of the 
Clinic.
